Race to the Top: Second Heat
It's time for round two for the Race to the Top. And local school districts are signing up. La Crosse, Holmen and Onalaska school boards have agreed to be part of Wisconsin's second application for education funding under the federal Race to the Top program. It's a competitive process and Wisconsin wasn't anywhere near the money in the first round of applications. But, if successful in the second round, local school districts could land big dollars. About 300 thousand for Onalaska, 350 thousand for Holmen and over a million dollars could come to La Crosse schools.
